Promoting Efficient Performance
Wear and tear seems to be an inevitable part of the lives of garage door systems. The many different parts involved in their operation are bound to pick up all sorts of dings and dents over the course of their lifespan. By having the moving metal components properly lubricated, however, you'll be able to reduce a lot of wear and increase the longevity of most of the hardware parts, including the rollers, the hinges and the torsion springs. Our technicians will apply the appropriate amount of lubrication to these components and check their condition and functionality to ensure that replacements aren't due.
Careful Spring Adjustment
Another important thing that needs to be carried out during a maintenance visit is a balance test. This allows our team to ascertain whether or not the springs need to be adjusted to compensate for the decrease in tension they experience over the years. This type of task can be very dangerous, so urge you not to temper with these units yourself and leave that up to our experts.
Crucial Safety Tests
